On Thursday 19th UEA Marxists had our final Marxist society meeting of the academic year at UEA, on the events in May ‘68. We had 13 attendees and some completely new faces who were interested in these events. May ‘68 isn’t common knowledge, so it was interesting to learn the history of the movement that happened only 50 years ago and just across the channel!
The discussion was very good and touched on other historical events such as Tienanmen square and Chile under Pinochet. We also discussed the need for us to learn from these historical scenarios and build the Marxist tendency!
